5 Reasons to read The Diviners
- The narrator did a fantastic job with this story. You were never confused which character was speaking.
- The time period. I loved reading a book set in the 20’s.
- The characters. Some of them are lovable, likeable, and others you are iffy about.
- The amazing words. Seriously, I didn’t realize how many fun words were used then. I’m going to start using them in my vocabulary.
- Creepy factor. The person behind all the craziness is creepy as hell. I was constantly looking over my shoulder to make sure nobody was behind me.
